{Dessert Hummus, You're Welcome}

I saw this recipe on Sprouts Facebook page last week and was determined to give it a try. A lover of hummus and a self-proclaimed sweet tooth, it sounded like a combo made in heaven. Friends, my instincts served me right and I am obliged to pass on the delicious treat with you.

My husband says it reminds him of soft cookie dough. Can't go wrong there, but {shhh} don't tell anyone that it's a much healthier alternative! With plenty of digestive-friendly fiber and healthy fat, this sweet snack has a lot to offer and will leave you satisfied for hours. Definitely a snack the whole family will love!

Oh and Happy March, by the way!

Dessert Hummus
roughly 8-10 servings

1 cup garbonzo beans
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch sea salt
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Blend the first five ingredients in your Vita-Mix or food processor until smooth. Stir in dark chocolate chips and serve with graham crackers, apple slices or better yet, cinnamon-sugar pita chips!

Happy snacking!
